October 12th is World Arthritis Day and Massage Envy is showing their support by hosting the Healing Hands for Arthritis event where they will donate $10 from every one-hour massage and facial during that day to the Arthritis Foundation.
Additionally, Murad®, Massage Envy Spa’s exclusive skin care partner, will donate 10% of all sales from their products sold at Massage Envy Spa locations during the event to the Arthritis Foundation. Wyndmere, Massage Envy’s retail partner at all locations, will also donate 10% of all their retail sales on event day.
In honor of Healing Hands for Arthritis Massage Envy DFW is spotlighting some of their clients who suffer from arthritis pain yet benefit from massage. You can read the personal stories and full bios of Massage Envy DFW clients on their Facebook wall. I love how they are taking the time out to make a personal connection with their clients and share those stories in hopes to help someone. It shows how much supporting the Arthritis Foundation means to them.
Over the past two years, Massage Envy has donated nearly $100,000 to fund clinical research related to the benefits of massage therapy. Recent scientific studies have found that massage therapy increases immune function, decreases stress levels and reduces recovery time in many medical conditions including arthritis.
Did you know that arthritis affects one out of every five adults and more than 300,000 children? Those are some scary statistics! I’m happy to see that not only is Massage Envy trying to make a difference by specializing in massage therapy to help those suffering from arthritis pain but they are also working hard to support research to find a cure.
I hope you visit your local Massage Envy on October 12th in support of the Arthritis Foundation. Call and make your appointment today. Who couldn’t use a relaxing massage or cleansing facial? I know I could!
Full Disclosure: I will receive a coupon for a complimentary massage for taking the time to promote this event. All opinions are 100% mine.
